Brethren… What’s your Saturday morning looking like? Hope you can meet us!
Offenses Will Come
Inevitably, we will experience offenses by other people. Jesus said so Himself in Luke 17:1, “Then said he unto the disciples, ‘It is impossible but that offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!'” By the term offenses, Jesus was referring to opportunities to stumble! When put in the proper perspective, Jesus was teaching that there will be moments when others will do or say things that will challenge our response. We can either respond gracefully or in ways that provoke sin.
As believers, God places a premium on how we handle people. It is often said, “Why are Christians supposed to be so forgiving and turn the other cheek?” as if nothing happens to the other person. Looking at Luke 17:1 the “woe” is assigned to the offender! Additionally, as Christians, we are expected to show Christ in how we conduct ourselves. So, how do we Christians handle offense?
Join us as Minister Jimi Emmons sheds light on this month’s theme, “Dealing with Offenses”. Our gathering is sure to be an amazing journey through scripture as the topic of offenses is unpacked!
Meet you there!
